re: Ethan's question - I think the enum use should be restored in re.

I realize issue28082 (yay palindrome number) is not an urgent change but we created IntEnum for the purpose of more identifiable integer constants.

So a microbenchmark of "import re" slows down.  so what?  I don't find this to be a big deal.  Other standard library modules also use enum and I expect more to do so in the future.  In realistic size programs other things use enum as well so there isn't a hit.

PS thanks for the improvements!
